Baking with Dorie: Pumpkin Muffins

I feel like such a good girl eating these. They are soooo healthy-tasting!!

They aren't sweet at all, in fact you can barely taste the sugar. They are mild-tasting, sweet-spice flavored, good old-fashioned muffins.

This week's Baking with Dorie (BWD) recipe was chosen by Elizabeth of Gluten-Free Baking. Elizabeth did her's gluten-free, so if you're looking for the recipe, head over to Chaya's blog at My Sweet and Savory or Page 13 of Baking from my home to yours by Dorie Greenspan.

Honestly, these are about the healthiest thing I've ever baked!! And I love the crunch from the sunflower seed sprinkles.

I had some with some jam as per the serving suggestion by Dorie. Even then it still tasted healthy!! Thanks, Elizabeth!! ;-)

In two week's time, we're baking My Fav Pecan Pie chosen by yours truly!! If you'd like to join us, send an email to needfulthings at ymail dot com.

Baking with Dorie: Kids' Thumbprints

Four words: I love these cookies!! I hate that I love them because I know I'll keep on opening the cookie jar to get "just another one" (thank God I only made half a batch!). Yup, I made them tonight and am totally in love with them!!

The peanut butter cookies are delighfully crisp and the rolled-on chopped nuts (I used almonds) and the strawberry jam filling complemented one another so well. Crisp yet soft cookie, a nutty and roasty outer shell plus a sweet, sticky filling. You gotta love them!!

Thumbs up (pun intended) to Grapefruit of Needful Things for picking out the recipe this week. Please head over to her blog for the recipe. You may also find it on page 163 of Baking: From My Home To Yours by Dorie Greenspan.
